What is food insecurity?
Food security is a federal measure of a household’s ability to provide enough food for every person in the household to have an active, healthy life. Food insecurity is one way we can measure the risk of hunger.


What are the effects of food insecurity?


Food insecurity can have a wide impact, depending on each individual’s circumstances. Some of the most common, yet complex, effects of food
insecurity include:

  • Serious health complications, especially when people facing hunger are forced to choose between spending money on food and medicine or medical care;

  • Damage to a child’s ability to learn and grow; and

  • Difficult decisions for seniors — often living on fixed incomes — such as choosing between paying for food and critical healthcare.
